“We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and by our serenity, make others more tranquil.” Swami Satchidandanda
Many of us are just too busy to take care of ourselves. It is not uncommon for the pressures of daily life to build up and make us ill. Think of your retreat as a circuit breaker, offering you a much-needed respite from the toxic overload; a peaceful reset to renew and restore your well being.
You will travel to Cochin in Southern India where you will be met by a representative and escorted by car, coach and boat to Coconut Lagoon. Upon arrival you will start your treatment with cardamon tea and a massage or yoga session.
Sonali has chosen Coconut Lagoon for its enlightened charm and nurturing ethos. Located on Lake Vembanad, the basin for the coconut-fringed backwaters of Kottayam, Coconut Lagoon is host to a range of cottages built from the remnants of old local mansions, or tharavads. Against a backdrop of butterflies and local birds, you will receive Ayurvedic treatment based on ‘kalaripayattu,’ an ancient martial art which promotes fitness through massage and medicated herbal oils.
Your twice-daily massage treatments focus on ‘marma’ or vital points. There are approximately 20 different possible therapies. You will receive those attuned to your constitution, determined in consultation with a senior Ayurvedic doctor before you begin treatment.
All treatment are administered by highly-trained Ayurvedic practitioners and massage therapists and occur in the tranquil treatment rooms of the Coconut Lagoon.
